Comment 1 Mihai Ibanescu 2003-02-04 00:05:30 UTC
This has been fixed, and the packages are in QA. If you want to test the
packages yourself, I can definitely hand them off to you, otherwise they're
gonna show up in an erratum.

Comment 2 Mihai Ibanescu 2003-02-27 23:41:58 UTC
Errata was shipped - please confirm bug is fixed.
